Todd Grantham is reportedly headed back to the NFL.

SEC insider Chris Low reports that Grantham, an Alabama analyst who interviewed for the Crimson Tide defensive coordinator position, is joining the New Orleans Saints staff as an assistant coach.

Grantham, 56, has been in coaching since 1990. After working on Nick Saban’s Michigan State staff, Grantham was an NFL assistant from 1999-to-2009.

In 2010, Grantham returned to college football to be Georgia’s defensive coordinator. He held that position through the 2013 season.

Grantham was Louisville’s defensive coordinator from 2014-to-2016 before returning to the SEC. He was Mississippi State’s defensive coordinator in 2017, Dan Mullen’s last season as head coach of the Bulldogs. Grantham followed Mullen to Florida and was the Gators’ defensive coordinator from 2018 until his late-season dismissal in 2021.

Grantham was on Alabama’s staff as a defensive analyst for the 2022 season.
